The film centers on the life of Tod Lubitch (John Travolta), who was born with an improperly functioning immune system. This means that contact with unfiltered air may kill him, so he must live out his life in incubator conditions.
He lives with his parents, since they decided to move him from the hospital where he was being kept as a boy.
He is constricted to staying in his room all his life, where he eats, learns, reads and exercises, while being protected from the outside world by various coverings.

Its far from as bright and rosy as the movie makes it out to be.

Canada had sense enough to ban the poison. Now to the movie: I refuse to believe that Johnny Revolta is a serious actor. Just another bag of grease. I just read on IMDB that Johnny Revolta was porking Diana Hyland, that they "fell in love." Gotta run, the Saturday night fights is coming on right now. It's live from the St Nickolas Arena on Dumont's Ch. 5.

Subject: great, but
Great movie--done--period. I know it was made for
TV movie, but I remember the original quality was much better.
I'm assuming the original analogue film was not taken care of , and over the years in a sweat box--deteriorated?
Does anyone know for sure what happened to the master copy?
Subject: A Wonderful Movie
I've also been looking for this movie for years. I have multiple chemical sensitivities and can have no perfumes or strong chemicals in my house. Everything is unscented or it is on a shelf on the patio.
This movie is unvarnished and sensitive. One of my favorite Travolta films. He is so young and talented. No surprise he became a super star. I was a teenager when this came out. Everything about it reminds me of my childhood. The clothes, the hairstyles, the way people related to each other prior to home computers. This is exactly how it was back then.
Diana Hyland who plays his mother was his real life first serious relationship. She was 16 years older than Travolta. They met making this movie. Unfortunately she died about a year later in his arms. She had cancer. The other characters are played by powerhouse talents of the day. Glynnis O'Connor is beautiful as Gina.
I don't know how it ended up in the public domain but that makes it a real treasure.

i'm looking for this film about 25 years. I'm seen this film on 1988 in Argentina and in the Travolta's filmography is not remember that. I think is one of the great's film of Travolta's films.

Subject: still love this movie
I remember watching this movie on TV when I was 16 and in love with John Travolta. I cried at the end and wondered what ever happened to Tod. it still holds a place in my heart. It made a 16yr old girl think about people who we view as different, and to try and treat them the same as anyone else. It made an impression that has lasted a life time. I would highly recommend this movie to be viewed by all teenagers.
